Your Dr. Bruce sadly reports the loss of a dear friend and neighbor of these past 25 years: Fred McPherson. I first met Fred in the 90s when I first moved to Boulder Creek. Some time later I learned that he was a major figure in the counter-cultural movements in Santa Cruz in the 60s and 70s. Working with a set of early environmental activitists, Fred had helped lead efforts to prevent a major new highway, a full three or four lane expressway actually, from being built up into the San Lorenzo...

This energy can unify us with what is: the source of life itself. Dr. Bruce has recently been engaged in practices that are taking him closer to opening to this energy, so his heart was wide open to Dr. Kaushik's telling of this link between the body, the mind and this path to transformation. As our world...

Recorded on the eve of the new year 2017 and offered on the eve of the so-called "inauguration" of a non-elected "president".
